Facing the ire of critics and fans alike, the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/pakistan/">Pakistan cricket team</a> found an ally in former captain <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/moin-khan/">Moin Khan</a>, who believes the 1992 champions did not have a disastrous World Cup campaign despite standing on the verge of ouster. <p></p> <p></p>Pakistan's hopes of sealing a semi-final berth were trampled when arch-rivals India and New Zealand lost to England, leaving the road to the knockout stage for <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/sarfaraz-ahmed/news/">Sarfaraz Ahmed</a> and his men just an improbable mathematical calculation. <p></p> <p></p>They will take on Bangladesh in their final group stage match at the iconic Lord's in London on Friday. <p></p> <p></p>"Look if we win against Bangladesh we would end the World Cup with five wins out of nine with one match abandoned which is not a bad performance by my standards. So, whatever the PCB does it needs to think very carefully because just changing faces or positions will not help," Moin said. <p></p> <p></p>Pakistan have won five games out of the eight matches with one game being a washout. They suffered heavy defeats at the hands India, Australia and the West Indies, which spoiled their net run rate. <p></p> <p></p>Citing the example of reigning champions Australia and their impressive turnaround, former Test batsman Basit Ali said professionalism and accountability is the need of the hour for Pakistan cricket. <p></p> <p></p>"Australia till recently were being badly bruised and beaten at home by India and see how they staged a comeback and are now top of the World Cup points table. We need that sort of professionalism, planning, and accountability of players and coaches in our system," Ali said. <p></p> <p></p>The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has already announced that its revamped cricket committee will hold a robust inquiry into the team's performances in the last three years before making recommendations to the Chairman for action.
